Guitar Strings & Gauges
If you’re looking for a chunky, low end sound then always buy heavy string sets. It’s easier to produce the bass heavy sounds this way. Although, it can be really difficult to play solos on a .012 or .013 set.
If you are new to learning solos and want to focus on your lead playing, you should buy a light gauge set. This will make playing very easy and smooth, ideal for beginners.
